Description: Jim's knives are excellent pieces for the chef that wants a knife that is as attractive as it is useful. It utilizes a very deep choil (cut-out) for the forefinger to rest in. This makes the knife easy to hold onto even with slippery hands. The blade is made from 440C stainless steel and is given a hand-rubbed satin finish. It is hardened and double tempered to Rc 59-60 for excellent edge retention. It has extensive modified serpentine filework along the spine of the blade, which is not only decorative but adds a non-slip area on the back of the blade to rest the thumb.
